Our Purpose

Ebenezer Zane Chapter, OHSSAR

The SAR is a historical, educational, and patriotic non-profit, United States 501(c)3, corporation that seeks to maintain and extend

 the institutions of American freedom

 an appreciation for true patriotism

 a respect for our national symbols

 the value of American citizenship

 the unifying force of e pluribus unum that has

created, from the people of many nations, one

Nation and one people.


We do this by perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men who achieved the independence of the American people in the belief that these stories are universal ones of man's eternal struggle against tyranny, relevant to all time, and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it too is called upon to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions.
